Burren Food Fayre

The Burren Food Fayre Weekend will hold its 6th annual food themed event in Lisdoonvarna on the October bank holiday weekend – Sunday 29th of October 2017. As part of the Winterage Festival, the Food Fayre showcases the fabulous Burren produce.

The theme of the fayre in 2017 is Food and Wellness, it will take place in the Pavilion in Lisdoonvarna and will consist of demonstrations, stalls and the Burren Beilíní contest (for BEN members)

The event is organised by the Burren Ecotourism Network (B.E.N.) and will have a focus on the food produce offered by the Food Trail members. There will be a strong emphasis on local produce, promoting the delicious flavours of the Burren.

The Food Fayre will be opened by Risteard O’Domhnaill – director of the feature documentary film Atlantic about fishing communities in Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland.

The full programme of events will be available in August.

More information:

Venue: The Pavilion (Town Hall) Lisdoonvarna. Free to enter.

This event is organised by the Burren Ecotourism Network and Burren Food Trail in conjunction with Burren Beo Winterage Festival (Wintergae Festival)





The Burren Food Fayre was first held in October 2012.  The Burren Ecotourism Network (BEN) was asked by Burrenbeo to be involved in the first Winterage Festival.  It was agreed by BEN that this initiative would be led by the Conservation & Advocacy group as it was a means of engaging with the local community, supporting a local conservation charity (Burrenbeo) and enabling BEN members to work together on a specific event as part of a larger festival
